Where is that? I'd like to read it.

Going back, you can cut the springs. That is really cheap. I've known some who did it but I don't know if the ride quality is good. As far as being cheap is concerned, this one should qualify.

Because I know you and your past on this website:

Don't go lower.

1) You can't afford it since you refuse to do it yourself.
2) You'll complain about scraping on things and ruining the bottom of your car.
3) You don't like Corksport.
4) You'll get angry about all the additional rock chips your front end, hood, and headlights will get.

Not being mean, just being practical.
